Summary: 
It is generally believed that jamming signals similar to communication signals tend to demonstrate better jamming effects. We believe that the above conclusion only works in certain situations. To select the correct jamming scheme for a multi-level quadrature amplitude modulation (MQAM) signal in a complex environment, an optimal jamming method based on orthogonal decomposition (OD) is proposed. The method solves the jamming problem from the perspective of the in-phase dimension and quadrature dimension and exhibits a better jamming effect than normal methods. The method can construct various unconventional jamming schemes to cope with a complex environment and verify the existing jamming schemes. The Experimental results demonstrate that when the jammer ideally knows the received power at the receiver, the proposed method will always have the optimal jamming effects, and the constructed unconventional jamming scheme has an excellent jamming effect compared with normal schemes in the case of a constellation distortion.
